“The comforting thing to the horse is, is as you become more and more accurate, he knows you’re aware of him, and pretty soon because of that he’s aware of you more and more of the time.” – Buck Brannaman
Accuracy is such and important thing in horses, as is consistency. When this photo was taken, I had very little of either. My horse Ozzie me humored me and was a great teacher. Giving me very little until I got it right! It is amazing when your awareness changes and your realize that your horse acknowledges you…then you realize you have been riding all along without it and you (or at least I did) wonder how I survived so long without it!
Horses are so generous and giving. It is amazing to work to be a better partner to my horses!
When have you had big changes in your awareness with your horse? During a clinic or out working on your own?
